Pastel Purim themes

Purim is a joyous holiday that sets a carnival-like atmosphere where children and adults dress up in costumes, people bring gifts of food door-to-door and giving charity to the poor is customary. We just finished celebrated the Purim holiday and is one of my favorite Jewish holidays! This year for Mishloach Manot -customary food baskets- I let my creativity unfold with simple ideas on a budget.
